I have enjoyed my stays at other Kimpton properties, The Brice in Savannah as well as a Kimpton stay in DC. The Hotel Monaco in Alexandria is another wonderful Kimpton property. Easy check in with no long lines and friendly helpful staff at front desk. Always love the feel of a Kimpton lobby. Free coffee in the morning. Room was...

This hotel is not in an old historic building, although they would like you to think that it the case. It is probably not over 30-35 years old, so there is no excuse for the persistent 'poor ventilation' smell that has been present during two different stays in two different rooms. The room size is adequate for two people who...

Loved the decor - very retro & unique! The staff were all excellent - front desk, bell hops - everyone!! Love that they're dog friendly. Enjoyed seeing the pets in the lobby and courtyard. We did not have a pet this time. If you're not a pet lover - simply request room on different floor from the "dog floor" and...

One of two Kimpton properties in Old Town, Hotel Monaco is closer to the water, directly across the street from the nation's oldest Farmer's Market, and smack dab in the middle of this beautiful city. The hotel recently underwent a renovation, in keeping with the historical surroundings. The rooms are small, but well maintained. The service at the hotel is...

We stayed at the Monaco Alexandria for two nights while attending a wedding. The hotel is lovely and located in a very nice section of Alexandria (my first time there). The staff were very warm and welcoming, and went out of their way to be helpful. The lobby is striking, i keeping with most of the Kimpton hotels I have...

Outstanding Kimpton. I have been to this facility on two different business trips and have had consistent attentive care and quality service. Everything is to my liking, and if I have a request, they find a way to make it happen. I am in WnDC often for business and strive to make this my "home" each visit. From the front...

Top notch hotel - all the amenities you could ask for including a stock mini fridge! For me the best feature was the location - walking distance to the waterfront - even took a cruise up the Potomac to Georgetown and walked back to the hotel. Small shops and eateries were delightful.

I love kimpton hotels. The one in Alexandria was cozy and welcoming. I always enjoy the free wine reception in the evenings. Our room was large and I felt comfortable going there to relax after a long day of sightseeing. I enjoy seeing all the dogs and appreciate the fact that they are dog friendly.

We have stayed may times at the Monaco when we visit Alexandria. We are always impressed how smart and innovative Ms Kayla, the manager, is in insuring the comfort of the guests. We will continue to patronize Monaco because the Hotel is well run, immaculate and convenient .
